    Ships question

    I found this about ships:
    http://www.birthright.net/forums/sho...php?title=Ship

    1. What edition are the stats (for example the longship)? I dont recognize it as 2nd edition stats
    Are these from a supplement that can be downloaded somewhere on this site?

    2. What do all the stats mean and how do they work, because i see 3 different AC's?
    a. Overall AC -3
    b. Hull Sections 14 (sink 3 sections)
    c. section 50 hp (hardness 5)
    d. Section AC 3
    e. Rigging Sections 1
    f. Rigging hp 60 (hardness 0)
    g. AC 1
    h. Ram 4d6
    i. Mounts 2 l ight
    j. Compliment 60

    The page says "The statistics block from Stormwrack, the 3.5 supplement for the sea..."

    So it isn't a warcard stat block, I don't have the supplement to say how to interpret the stats, sorry.

    These are from Stormwrack, one of my favorite 3.5 books.

    a. Overall AC -3 - Whole ship's AC, hardly ever used
    b. Hull Sections 14 (sink 3 sections) - usually, you'd attack a section of hull or rigging
    c. section 50 hp (hardness 5)
    d. Section AC 3 - so, there's 14 hull sections, each 10'x10'x10'

    e. Rigging Sections 1 - more or less, this is the number of masts.
    f. Rigging hp 60 (hardness 0)
    g. AC 1 - AC for the Mast/Rigging section

    h. Ram 4d6 - Damage dealt by the ship, per 10 feet of its speed if it rams another vessel

    i. Mounts 2 light - Light = ballista, Heavy = catapult options

    j. Complement 60 - maximum crew + passengers for a long voyage
